Forums - Movies Discussion - Top Movies of the 80's elimination thread! Big Trouble in Little China and Die Hard tied for first place! Sudden death?

 

We finally made it to the MAIN EVENT! Now it is time to vote for you favorite movie of all time that was not on the original list. Please take not of the new rules below. Now sit back, get some popcorn, and start voting for your top 80's fan favorite movie! This is a battle to the finish, so I hope you have your second wind!

 

Lets make this easy.

Rules:

1. Each movie will start out with 21 points, once the movie hits zero it is gone.

2. One Vote every 2 hours.(God that will be a lot of counting all at once!)

3.  Only plus votes from now on. You get 1 plus voted every 2 hours. Saturday at 12 a.m I will tally up which movie got the most votes.

4. Movies are organized by decade ;)

5. One I forgot to add, please leave quoting to no more than 3 quotes.

6. I will have the movies voting position in the movie title box.

7. For missing movies (I know a lot of them for the 80's) there will be a bonus round.

Rules changes based off post here in the thread, and in suggestions sent in messages and wall.

And here we go!

We have movie, Box office total, and year of release for most of the movies.But now with consolidation totals and year of release are incorrect now!

You know it would have lost to Star wars in the end anyways.

I missed a bunch, but I think anymore would have been too much.

Sylvestor Stallone can win in the greatest 90's movie for cliffhanger.

At least Turner and Hooch has a chance of winning! :P
